Idea Factory has announced that they will be bringing their first PS Vita title to North America, Monster Monpiece. Set for a PSN release this spring, the game is a mixture of card battling and light role-playing elements that tasks players with tracking down a friend who has become “Lost” and leader to a group of creatures known as “monster girls.” As her best friend, May, players must stop Elza and her gang from stealing the protective quartz housed within the world’s cities. The cards are represented by 3D chibi characters, and there are over 100 monster girls to call upon during battle. Each monster has their own skills and weaknesses, and they can be fused for new combinations as well as powered by rubbing the touch screen (it seems even monsters have hearts). The game will also support ad hoc and network modes for multiplayer.
The announcement included a disclaimer as well, noting that the North American and European versions have been graphically altered “due to the strong sexual nature of the card images” of some of the evolved forms. However, Idea Factory also stressed that the “gameplay, game system, and storyline are fully intact.”
Monster Monpiece is scheduled to launch this spring on PSN for PS Vita.
